So I've been having anxiety since a child,ocd,phobias etc but one of the worst things that always seem to bother me was health anxiety.When I used to get sick I always portrayed the worst things in my mind which lead to a state of hopelessness.

It happened when I got scoliosis during first year of high school,where for 6 months straight I thought I was having herniated discs and as a consequence I was going to be sitting in a wheelchair for the rest of my life.

It also happened when I used to have strong headaches from a tooth where I thought I had brain cancer and inevitably I was going to die.

All these episodes and some others led to me being put on lexapro 10mg since the last july.It has helped me a lot with my general anxiety,ocd,panic attacks etc. But 2 days ago I ate some cow brains and now I have convinced myself that I hace variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease( aka mad cow disease) I have been very unenergetic lately because of this thing.
Mad cow disease is fatal,causes a very quick death,it has no cure etc
Plus, I am from a place where food control is almos inexistent and this makes my anxiety worse.


Sorry for thr long post guys but has anyone else here experienced the same things related to the mad cow disease?
